  • Alternatively, efferent fibers can sustain established connections only as long as afferent fibers are present.

  • These differences, i.e., numbers of muscle fibers activated either parallel to or in-series with the mechanoreceptor, create changes in the afferent receptive field and alter its discharge properties.

  • We suggest that limited expression of neurotrophins in the immature target leads to retention of primary neurons and their afferent fibers in newborn and early postnatal Brn3c null mice.

  • The discharge of the afferent was recorded throughout the stretch.

  • Nociceptors are specialized primary afferent neurons and the first cells in the series of neurons that lead to the sensation of pain [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ] . The receptors in these cells can be activated by different noxious chemical or physical stimuli [ 9 10 11 ] . The essential functions of nociceptors include the transduction of noxious stimuli into depolarizations that trigger action potentials, conduction of action potentials from peripheral sensory sites to synapses in the central nervous system, and conversion of action potentials into neurotransmitter release at presynaptic terminals, all of which depend on ion channels [ 6 12 13 14 15 16 ] .
